Often because I talk about so many Ragdoll cats on my blog (especially my mom’s cats, Caymus and Murphy), people are confused what cats are actually mine. Truth be told, my very first Ragdoll was MINE – his name was Skittles, I got him when I was 8 years old as a gift for my birthday from my grandparents. Unfortunately, Skittles died at 2 years of age from FIP. My mom then got two kittens to “replace” Skittles and those cats were our family cats – Rags and Cosby. Cosby died at 10 months old of FIP as well. Rags lived to tell the tale.
Rags, was my family’s cat, who I got when I was 10 years old. He lived until he was 19.5, so until I was 29 years old (I am now 31). Since I had Rags for so long and because I was the most into him, I ended up claiming him as mine – although he was my family’s cat. After he died, about 6 months later, I got Charlie and a month later, Trigg in 2009.
Trigg wanted to go on the mantel today – so I cleared it off and when Charlie saw that Trigg was on the mantel, he wanted to be on there too – so it gave me an idea for a post and a photo.
